romney this day when chris is raving at how bam has been. >> well, chris christie, does not want romney to win. it's in his interest for obama to win. the individuals come is that this storm helps. i am not so sure about that. all of it was for romney prior to this. if you freeze it, romney had it. the waves were headed and i don't know when you freeze things this favors obama. i am not so sure. >> well, that's a spin, but i i don't think that's the case. i don't buy that he had that momentum. obama has had most of the swing states. that's going to be the key is that election is one week from today. obama's people are on the ground and going to be going door to door and getting the vote out. >> one thing to think about here is the undecided has already broke before the storm. had this storm come a week earlier, it could have seen an impact. romney went over 50 and that tells us that the undecided had already broken. they are not likely to break back again. >> how is the president going change the numbers. a lot of polls have romney up a point. >> it does not matter. those are weighted o
? (laughter) >> jon: i do. >> well, then mitt romney does, too! (cheers and applause) he always has since day one. >> oh, come on, jon, he's just being a dick! i'm telling you, salt and pepper pubic hair. real dick! real dick! >> jon: i hate to say this but by calling everyone a dick all the time i think the obama campaign's closing argument comes across a little dickish, quite frankly. >> no, no, no, you can't call them a dick for calling out a dick, jon. you can't call double-dick. (laughter) you can't do it. >> that's ri ridiculous. >> it is ridiculous, jon. it's not the kind of values governor romney grew up with as a lost jewish kid in central jersey. >> jon: what? wait! what? >> governor romney learned during his days listening to bruce springsteen in a -- >> jon: what? >> in a haze of pot smoke dreaming of becoming a stand up comedian. >> jon: oh, my god! that's just like my life. i didn't know romney was so relatable! >> jon, you see what he's doing! this isn't a question of romney's biography, this is about hard experience. you've heard the president, he's been everywhere. from pah-k

sandy disrupting the campaigns of president obama and governor romney seven days until election day. the president distracted dealing with a national emergency. governor romney distracted trying to find the appropriate balance of campaigning in the midst of national catastrophe. fox news chief white house correspondent ed henry with our report. >> this is a tough time for a lot of people. >> after cancelling to more campaign events president obama headed to the red cross to continue the role of heeler in chief. >> there is no excuse for inaction at this point. i won every agency to lean forward and to make sure that we are getting the resources where they need to know where they are needed as quickly as possible. >> looking presidential in the final week of a tight campaign in a role that won -- one rare praise from governor chris christie who gave the keynote address at the republican national convention. >> she has been very attentive. anything that i have asked for his gun. i think the president publicly for that. he has done as far as i'm concerned, great job for new jersey. >>
is the right man to help detroit and fix auto industry. for the next couple days romney will walk a fine line between trying to rally voters and continue the cam pawn stay on the right side of the relief effort. bret? >> bret: carl cameron traveling with the romney campaign. carl, thank you. a mexican man has become the first to be convicted in the death of the u.s. border agent brian terry two years ago. two rifles known as operation fast and furious found at the shooting scene. the suspect pleaded guilty to first degree murder and faces up to life in prison. animal rights activist and dead fish in california, adds up to an amazing story in grapevine. up next, as the storm passes, the relief efforts gear up. [ male announcer ] this is steve. he loves risk. but whether he's climbing everest, scuba diving the great barrier reef with sharks, or jumping into the market, he goes with people he trusts, which is why he trades with a company that doesn't nickel and dime him with hidden fees. so he can worry about other things, like what the market is doing and being ready, no matter what happens, wh
had changed juxta posed against the damage. >> reporter: we are a week from election day, this campaign is anything but normal at this point. the president is still cancelling campaign days on the trail. mitt romney is postponing campaign events. underneath the surface, they're still waging a pretty aggressive back and forth, particularly in the state of ohio. hunkered down in washington for the second day, the president stopped by red cross headquarters. >> the reason we're here, the red cross knows what it's doing. my message to the federal government, no bureaucracy, no red tape. >> reporter: mitt romney, who had suspended campaigning for the day, travelled to the battle state of ohio to encourage donations to the red cross. >> i had a chance to speak with some of the governors in the affected areas, they talked about people having hard times. i appreciate the fact that people in dayton got up this morning, some went to the grocery store i see, and purchased some things that these families will need. >> reporter: and with presidential politics hanging in the balance. o
in this crisis is obviously nonpartisan. i can't remember a day when mitt romney seemed less relevant to americans. except maybe yesterday. joining me now is steve kornacki co-host of "the cycle" here on msnbc. he used to cover governor christie and he's writing about how the hurricane has frozen the race for mitt romney. and joy reed, msnbc contributor and managing editor for thegrio.com. thanks for both of you for being here tonight. >> good to be here. >> steve, you write about this today. what do you make of christie? >> part is christie being christie to a certain extent. some people were trying to figure out if romney would put him on the ticket. this is one of the reasons that was never a serious possibility because he had-s his own man and they can't control him. but i think probably the best way to understand this is, by looking at new jersey politics. remembering in new jersey, blue state, president obama carried by a big margin in '08 and will carry it by a big margin next week. christie has to run for re-election in that state next year, 2013. he's fairly well positioned t
. this is not 16 days it's six days. >> the romney campaign put out a memo about pennsylvania. >> absolutely. >> let me ask mark akbout pennsylvania. i was there last week. the republicans saying we can do this, we can win pennsylvania, democrats saying it's not even in play. what is your assessment? >> well the obama campaign needs pennsylvania to win. the romney campaign doesn't. i don't think they would be wasting the money in pennsylvania on the republican side if they thought they had no chance or at least a chance to distract the democrats. if the romney campaign went on the air in new york, i don't think the obama campaign would feel compelled to match the dollars there. if the obama campaign went on the air in texas tv i don't think the romney campaign would feel the need to go there. the vice president had a trip planned there means they're a little worried. republicans are doing two things at once, not just the romney campaign but outside groups, trying to put pressure on the president to defend turf like minnesota, and to move resources including candidate time away from ohio but
is play mistake-free ball for the next seven days. >> jennifer: you are advising mitt romney -- put on your mitt romney "war room" hat -- for the president it is easier bah he has this job and he musz make sure fema is working, and he can be in front of the camera. for mitt romney his only job has been to get elected, so what does he do? >> i think the middle ground and sweet spot for romney is to be exceptionally sensitive to how things are going. but if people seem to be handling it as being marriage, even as the cleanup is taking place on the other side you can get back -- >> >> jennifer: but does it come at a worst time for him? >> clearly it freezes the campaign. that helps the president. secondly it gives the president a chance to demonstrate leadership and confidence. and then it usually translates to the benefit of the incumbent. people go back to what they know. this is a natural disaster. it requires government to be there to provide support and provide emergency services. one of the interesting things in this campaign has been the impact of government.
voted one in six voters who said they voted they gave mitt romney a six-point margin, less than one out of five voters say they are going to vote before election day, they split evenly between president obama and governor romney which tends to indicate that at least the enthusiastic el her voters are republican and the democrats have a prove with a lack of enthusiasm among their people and finally on election day the people would plan, just less than two-thirds 63 percent plan to vote on election day, they split for governor romney by the same number six points 51 to 45 percent so at least according to gallup this looks good. it is also borne out by if you look at the battleground state roughly 11 million, rather, 11 percent advantage for democrats either voting early or casting absentee ballot in 2008 but is far through roughly the 27th, it has been a decline of seven points if president obama declines seven point he is in trouble one with 53, dropping seven gives him 47. >>neil: how do you think the storm affects this in anyway? karl: where it is difficult to cope. romney will be hurt
the day in new hampshire, instead romney is going to hold what his campaign is calling a storm relief event. it's taking place in ohio. paul ryan will drop by campaign offices in hudson and lacrosse, wisconsin. joe biden and bill clinton are also on the stump for president obama. let's bring in our panel, former rnc chairman michael steele, former democratic senator blanche lincoln, and washington bureau chief susan page. susan, let me start with you. disaster politics. it's a fact of life. it's what can re-elect or unelect governors, but now it's potentially impacting the presidential race. any idea how this is going to impact? >> if you want to look at an opportunity for president, look at "morning joe," governor christie of new jersey, saying the president and fema are doing an outstanding job. i mean, that's the upside, potential political upside for a president. obama is not out there on the campaign trail like any candidate. he's in the situation room, being briefed overnight. >> right. this is an opportunity for him to be the president, to be the commander in chief, to make tha
romney has been making some progress in recent days. does this kind of freeze things for where they are now. >> woodruff: that's what i wanted to ask you, susan. does one candidate or another pick up an automatic advantage in a situation like this? >> i don't think there's an automatic advantage until we know what happens with this terrible storm. but if the federal government seems to be reonding inn effective way, i think that's to president obama's benefit. not only does its make his administration look competent but it makes the case for a government role, the role of government has been one of the fundamental debates between these two candidates. if the federal response does not look so competent we've seen how devastating that can be for incumbent presidents. we saw that with katrina, for instance, and george w. bush. >> woodruff: dan, what about a role for governor romney at a time like this? >> well, it's minimal at this point. i mean he really has to remain essentially iisibe. he can't lok like he's trng to do anyingoxplit the politics of the moment. so in a sense ther
, still spreading the message. bill clinton in minnesota, ann romney in wisconsin. the real concern? election day. residents might still be concerned with where to live, not where to vote. >> the above canceled major campaign events in virginia because of the storm. they will be making up those days. ronny will make three stops on friday in virginia -- romney will make three stops. >> our coverage continues right now on abc 7 news at 6. captioned by the national captioning institute --www.ncicap.org-- >> this is abc 7 news at 6, on your side. >> good evening. 24 hours ago we were bracing for sandia and that now we are cleaning up. >> to our north, there are flooded streets and tunnels. it the main problem in our immediate metro
a week until election day, romney's plan to stay in ohio and cam faine today. it's close. the latest real clear politics polling average gives the president a less than two--point lead over romney around five or six points before the first debate. there are serious concerns about disruptions to election day because of sandy's impact on key states like ohio and virginia. legally he the presidential cam taken could be postponed. states have the power to set their own rules for elections but can't change date for a presidentleal election on their own. it seems unlikely that will happen. in the guest spot today washington course dents for the cleveland plain dealer sabrina eaton. sabrina, i'm sure i don't have to show you, but for our viewers let's put up a picture of the front page of your newspaper today. at the top of the page, hurricane disrupts lives and politics across the east coast. under the fold, presidential campaign stalled. i have to wonder, are ohio voters sort of relieved to have a break in the campaign coverage? are they anxious to get back to politics? >> well, i don't know t
. >> i think to richard's point, this bipartisan bologna that mitt romney has been proposing over the last few days, is absolutely nonsensical when you look at his record in massachusetts, but also bear in mind mitt romney called republican governors yesterday. the president didn't. he called governors who are in states that are affected. and that's the big difference between these two men. and i think that that's what the audience, the public, sorry, and your audience, alex, are beginning to get hold of. this man is for the whole of america, the whole. >> that's the benefit presidents have. you can take the national perspective, you look like you're an executive at a time of crisis. you can do things. candidates are less on a stage with a microphone talking about doing things. there is an advantage at this point when for all the challenges that a natural disaster that presidents and governors get to do stuff. >> and nic, we know we just got a read out from the white house that the president was on the phone with local officials and state officials. he has a job to do at this time
of hurricane sandy. they can't exactly shut down their campaign a week ever election day. president obama and mitt romney have canceled events for today. >>> we are back at 6:35. this is always the place to get your weather first. look at the surf again kicking up. that's in delaware. that's where kristen fisher has been located the last few days. >> that looks almost like a nice beach day. >> exactly. >> i have a question that's not exactly -- well, it's weather related. can you guess why more trees didn't come down? >> i think a lot of the leaves had come off of the trees north and eastful they can catch the wind but they get more resistance. >> did we have the drenching rain? that's what i was told. >> we had drenching rain. i just heard a report in saint mary's county, 8 and a half inchings. thank you for that. >> what about here in the city? >> about of inches of rain. we had record national. our draught is pretty much done. we got a 2.5 inch instead of 8 inch deficit. they are draught busters. >> a lot of the weak trees will come down over the last few storms. >> i can't recollect
well come down to ohio. and in the last few days the romney campaign has done some things even independent observers consider desperate. first came this from mitt romney last thursday in defiance, ohio, about an hour away from toledo. >> i saw one of the great manufacturers in this state, jeep, now owned by the italians, is thinking of moving all production to china. i will fight for every good job in america. i'm going to fight to make sure trade is fair, and if it's fair, america will win. >> sounds terrible, but it's false. did you hear that, false, what he just said. chrysler which was bought by fiat said it's not taking any jobs from ohioans, it's adding jobs. also plans on resuming jeep production in china for chinese drivers. not moving jobs from the united states to china. customary lay when one of the campaign launches a commercial, they send us press releases, not this one. this started running in ohio and suggests that jobs are moving to china. >> who will do more for the auto vi? not back obama. fact checkers confirm his attacks on mitt romney are false. the truth?
day from the persian gulf, all the oil we import. the koch brothers want romney, and romney has promised, to roll back the fuel economy incentives. it's going to endanger young men and women who have to go to the middle east to import the oil. >> professor, back in the '60s we called such people pigs. pigs. no, really. they don't care about the planet, don't care about the destruction of war, all they care about is their stuff. and they want more of it. is that what we're talking about, greed? i'm not talking about the coal miner, that's hard work. i'm talking about people who won't listen to you or science because they want more stuff? >> listen, chris, i'm not into name calling here. >> well, i am. >> fine, that's your job, not mine. we have a serious job to do. the administration has actually started to put in regulations to reduce emissions. u.s. emissions are actually down modestly. we have a long way to go. we're going to have to do this by all getting together and acting cooperatively. we have to do in our own lives what we can, get those energy efficient appliances and c
cleared. mr. romney's running mate paul ryan held one event in florida before cutting the day short and heading to his home in wisconsin. in terms of hurricane sandy's direct effect on next week's election, chuck todd reports tonight that the fema director craig foou gait has told states if they incur extra costs because of the storm, if they have to move polling places or bring in generators for power, should sandy cause elections officials any expensive changes, states and cities will be reimbursed for those costs by the federal disaster relief, ev if one doesn't believe in that sort of thing. this is not a time for ideology. let's bring in michelle franzen in battery park in lower manhattan. everybody has been keeping an eye on the storm surge and wondering how high the water is going to rise. and what threat it's going to impose. what can you tell us about the conditions and how they are changing now? >> reporter: they have certainly deteriorat deteriorat deteriorated. we have a photo to show you. there's some water that's been reported gushing into the brooklyn battery tunnel.
to win but we're on a day-to-day assessment of the schedule. for governor romney it's the same kind of situation. there are places he may want to try to go to between now and tuesday that he's not going to be able to get to simply because of lack of time or because of storm damage. >> woodruff: susan, you raised this a minute ago. the impact on voting itself, absentee, early voting and voting on election day. we were hearing a few minutes ago this storm could have an after math that goes on for days. >> you know, we've expected 5 to 40% of the votes to be cast before election day because of the rise in early voting and absentee voting. this affects such a big part of the country. does it affect that number. and which organization is better able to respond to some of these last-minute challenges? i think you would have to say that the obama campaign has a bigger ground operation. they've put more focus on the ground although republicans have done a lot to build up ground operation that was really outclassed four years ago. this is... october... it's the nature an october surprise tha
before election day. they are looking at the government response to the storm and mitt romney has also reworked hits campaign schedule. >>> we will have coverage from the super storm coming up in 15 minutes and we will have more on how we are helping millions power outages. >>> giants are waking up in the bay area after a warm welcome celebrating the team's latest title. >> cheers were heard as they landed. fans and airport workers were there as manager bruce bochy dealt the manager. from the airport it was then on to at&t and about 500 fans gathered as a caravan gathered with the trophy and then handed it off to sergio romo to show it off. >> it is very fitting they are here to receive us especially with the trophy. this is where we fight for it and work for it at this time. they say they are now resting for tomorrow's parade. >>> and they are making the final jump and more than million will help get them their muni will add shuttle buses and cars as they build the parade floats and they are now working over time. >> we will be bursting couldn't 501.7 miles. if you plan to take part,
! romney's face totally kicked obama's face's ass. (laughter) jimmy, put up romney's default expression. see? see? that's nice. that reminds me of a benevolent angel watching me shower. (laughter) hi! (laughter) that guy can watch me all day. and, of course, of course, of course mitt was smiling! because he knows he nailed it. >> governor romney did do what he needed to do which was to present himself as a very plausible commander-in-chief. >> mitt romney had a job tonight and that was to come across as a plausible commander-in-chief. >> romney simply needing to show that, you know, he's a plausible president. >> and he achieved plausible. (laughter) millions of americans looked at mitt romney last night and said "he looks like he could sit in an oval room." (laughter) plausibility is a huge victory for romney because this race is neck and neck. >> we've seen this latest poll out of the nbc and "wall street journal." 47/47, pretty much corresponds with what we're seeing out there. an absolute dead heat. >> stephen: as we know from history, the rules clearly dictate that in the event of
they can work with, and that's mitt romney. folks, 8 more days. now, three days ago i was at the avon lake victory center. and the place was packed. people were enthused. they could see help is on the way with mitt romney and paul ryan. [applause] >> let me ask you, will you do everything you can do to ensure we can bring back america's promise. are you going to do it? put up your hand if you're going to make phone calls, commit to mitt today. let me see your hands. commit to mitt. this year, in ohio, you can commit early to mitt. go down to lorraine, 1985 north ridge road and vote early. you can leave after the event here -- and then on election day we cna find five people we know to get to the polls to commit to mitt. going for it. and we have to help the republican team. he needs a team that is with him. we have to make sure jim is reelected. jim jordan, bob gibbs are here. and i want to be the senior senator from ohio. we need josh mandel in ohio. we need him now. you know, president obama -- over the last four years has made a lot of decisions. some of them, he siad would result in ne
. it may include chris christie, the president or romney. the images you see on the screen all day yesterday and today are heart break, people's homes burned down outside of man hat it tan or i can't point out enough this new video of new jersey shore. many homes completely covered under sand. >> what that should tell you is that the election is frozen in this dead heat we've had. now, you mentioned earlier that the romney campaign is trying to expand a little bit, and now they're advertising in pennsylvania. at this point that's probably too little too late, and part of that is because the storm has gotten in the way. of course, people in pennsylvania are affected by it who won't pay attention it to the new campaign ads. i'm not sure if that was a wise investment by the romney campaign at this point late in the race. >> let me play what bill clinton had to say. he was in minneapolis, minnesota where the polls, 47/44, president obama with 47%. let me play a little bit of former president bill clinton, please. >> if those experts are right and we're going to get 12 million more jobs
has the presidential race. just a week out from election day cannot -- election day, president obama was at a red cross center today and he will assess the damage tomorrow. a rally in ohio for mitt romney turned into a storm relief drive. i am joined in astin -- austin, texas by matthew doud. i have been speaking to you from both campaigns today. no one wanted to play politics with this storm, but we are a week away from election day and they are both thinking about how this will affect them. >> the first thing it does is freeze the rates where it was before this storm happen. a slight advantage for mitt romney on the popular vote, and a slight advantage for the president to on the electoral college. you cannot really assess this until we get through this. and it will not be until this weekend where we see the impact of this. my inclination is that if the president can be president and not a candidate in the midst of this, he may see some small bump out of this. because the american public will see him acting as president, and that is always an advantage for an incumbent. >> and we h
the gop mitt romney spoke about their concerns about those days away. meanwhile, the candidates are tied in this race according to a new poll with the pew research center. president obama intelligent mitt romney are pulling from 47 percent of likely voters. the president still leads 47 to 45 percent among all registered voters. >> to have extended live coverage of election night nov we will be putting up eight on facebook and twitter as well. >> the time now the 7:37 a.m. we will be back with more in a couple of minutes. is nice out but we do see some fault in some areas. we are also looking at that transition on the way into some rain to day later on tonight. let's take a look at san jose you can see the red brake lights and traffic is not horrible acting to stands out in the fall. will it right back. tim cook is the most prominent executive to leave apple. the maps were so disastrous that cook and mr. a public apology. while apple work on improvements. also out apple's widely criticized 3 tel store chief john browett he is leaving after only nine months on the job. >> today we are brin
that plays out over the days. >> it plays for governor romney. both of these guys, you cannot ignore a fact a week from today is the election. charles: right. >> so, he has to do everything he can -- well, the president has to do everything he has to do. charles: how does it help romney. >> criticize iffed he doesn't do his job. he's criticized if he does too much and make it look political. romney is going, i just have to not make it look political right now. >> romney has to focus on what he needs to do for the campaign. this isn't a political situation, this is an american situation, the storm is hurting americans, no matter what their party affiliation, the president has a responsibility as president of the united states, which means, communicate with your governors, you know, people are going to argue whether it hurts or helps him. what matters is the campaign and the final seven days leading into it is going to be how their ground game. charles: but the point is though, david, the president does look like he's doing that job and walking the fine line, being presidential, being attenti
, wisconsin. the romney campaign also cancelling events through out the day in order to ow of the sensitivity. storm event later today in ohio. this super storm likely to cost businesses a lot of money. economy experts predicting losses will be more than last year's storm. the travel industry expected to lose over $700 million from airlines trains and car companies to spending their operations over the last few days. retailers and corporations expect end of the quarter hit because they will be shut down for at least two-days and the insurance industry could see claims as high as $10 billion. >> voters will get a chance to say they oppose the mandate. voters can say whether or not they want to block the mandate. it forces people to buy insurance. 16 other states passed laws or made changes to their state's constitutions in order to block that mandate. >> brand new video from queens new york. 2 huj firefighters are battling the massive fire. 16 -- 50 homes destroyed after the hurricane. the fdny are not saying whether there are any injuries or fatalities. the time is 39 after the hour. coming u
's not a matter of optics. it's a matter of a responsibility and governor romney can decide for himself what he wants to do. >> having said that, lynn, you cannot ignore the calendar. we're a week from election day. what are the stakes for this election? >> well, the highest, if it disrupts early voting and absentee balloting that each of the campaigns that counted on in the early states. it appears at the very first brush here that that may not have as high an impact since most of the damage is concentrated in other areas and new york state which is seen as safe for obama. mainly for scheduling purposes, i wouldn't expect to see either romney or obama in new hampshire or virginia again, and here's the rule of thumb in this is that for the president, good government is good politics and it would have been counter productive if he was out at a rally today because would still be a storm backlash. these events that romney and paul ryan have dealing with storm relief, that is a compromise between having a formal campaign event and going, just canceling the whole day of events and it's a delicate li
